Example of bi-di: dojotoolkit.org/reference-guide/1.10/dojox/mobile/bidi.html See the first screens. Now, imagine a right-handed user, for example, using one hand to say activate the the airplane mode. Which is easier - the LTR or the RTL version?

comment What would generic usability heuristics for wearables be like?
To a large extent, that is true. The heuristics are informed by a lot of mobility, analytics (the influence of Quantified Self measurement from wearables) and general considerations. However, I didn't regard dorkiness as a consideration. Perhaps you mean personalization should be extended to the device itself as part of the overall UX - one that considers style? So, a heuristic of "fit and feel" rather than "look and feel"?

Thank you, interesting observation. Would not this meet the "device fits the user" rather than "user fit the device" guideline (1st heuristic), perhaps it's more personalization? I am not familiar with the concept of the flexible screen, so maybe you could explain more? Thanks for sharing.
